about

After a highly misinformed and incompetent newspaper article on Terminatryx (the so-called writer even going so far as to alter the band's name!), it sparked this song which takes a stab at bogus journalism and tabloid stupidity. Got a bit of a Punk feel to it as well.

lyrics

Tabloid Android

You fabricate and masturbate
Pontificate and irritate

You're a tabloid android
A mechanized moron on auto-drive
God knows how you avoid -
Getting skinned alive

The art of blurring fact with fiction
And written contradiction
Causes crap and friction
(No retraction in the next edition)

Save the fantasy
For your "unfinished novel's" pages
You can't leave us be
But, cram us into cages

Box us in - to suit your needs
Deadline! Pick up the speed
Add sauce, add juice, add lies
How can you look them in the eyes?

You fabricate - and masturbate
Pontificate - and irritate

You're a tabloid android
A mechanized moron on auto-drive
God knows how you avoid -
Getting skinned alive

Sell-sell, gotta sell! (repeat)
Dig for dirt, dig for sleaze
You can go to hell
And we won't ask "please"

You're missing the point by a mile
This is not freedom of speech
Just want to make your editor smile
Dumb bastard - stupid bitch

You're pathetic, you're so pathetic
P-A-T-H-E-T-I and C!
You're pathetic, you're so pathetic
Hope one day you're more than a wannabe!

Misinformation - Trick the nation
Who cares about degradation - As long as it's in fashion
You sensationalize - And you polarize
Contracting flies - To your shit pies

Simply add a tale
And if no-one can prove it wrong then
Press freedom will prevail
And now you've got your own damn song

Why are you so bitter?
Wish you could be a celebrity?
Does it make you feel better,
Sacrificing your integrity?

You fabricate - and masturbate
Pontificate - and irritate

You're a tabloid android
A mechanized moron on auto-drive
God knows how you avoid
Getting skinned alive

I wish I could leave you off the record
But this just had to be said

With a dark blend of female-fronted Alternative / Industrial / Metal / Rock flavours, Terminatryx is an anomaly with an unexpected and invigorating sound.
